Make Up For Ever Winter Look

Make Up For Ever, model, winter, 2011If you’ve walked past Make Up For Ever recently — in store or virtually — you’ve probably seen their winter visual. I am in love with this look, so I asked the company for a breakdown, which they very graciously provided.

Prepare your skin with HD Elixir (a brightening, hydrating serum) followed by HD Microperfecting Primer #0 (neutral; adds natural luminosity).

Apply HD Invisible Cover Foundation (click here for swatches; the model is 110) using the Brush #35N (a nylon-bristled foundation brush not sold on

Using your fingertips, pat a small amount of HD Microfinish Blush #11 (a warm, ruddy color) a bit lower than the apples of your cheeks. Blend gently from cheekbone to your temple to contour.

Apply your Eye Shadow #126 (a shimmery peach-beige) on the entire eyelid from the lash line to the brow bone.

Starting at the outer corner of the eye, blend your Eye Shadow #123 (a golden, olive green) halfway across the eyelid. Then apply Eye Shadow #84 (a darker, blackened olive green) in the outer-v, and smoke it along the outer third of your top lashline. Finally, blend Eye Shadow #17 (a matte wood brown) into your crease.

Apply Aqua Eyes #0L (black) along the upper and lower lash lines, and line the lower waterline with Aqua Eyes #14L (white) for a brightening effect. Finish with a thick coat of Smoky Lash mascara in black, and add your favorite false eyelashes.

Apply Lab Shine #S4 (sheer strawberry pink) for a sleek finish.

I would love-love-love to see someone recreate this look. Does anyone want to take a crack at it? You don’t necessarily have to use all the same products, and (with your permission) I’ll feature your look here on the blog.

    Rouge Artist Intense lipstick #24 over Aqua Lip pencil 1C is a better bet for the lips.

    Finally! I’ve been trying to like crazy to figure out what lipstick that model’s wearing, but on Sephora, the pic flashes by too fast. Thanks so much for doing this!
